I never seem to have a sympathy card on hand when I need one and maybe that's because I don't want to have to send one out to a friend. Lately though the sympathy cards I've made have come at a time when they are needed to send my thoughts and feelings to a dear friend who has lost someone very close to them. This card is the second one I've needed, the first I haven't blogged yet. A dear friend who I've know for at least 10 years lost a daughter suddenly this past week. They believe she had an asthma attack and no one was home with her to help her when she needed it. She leaves behind a husband and a 7 yo daughter. So, so sad.
My card here is for the International Art & Soul Challenge. The theme of the challenge is Embossing - wet or dry, whichever you want. I embossed the sentiment which is the focal point of my card.
